The film revolves around a number of women from different walks of life whose destinies are tied together; being all under one siege. As the events unfolds, their own personal stories reflect on a far bigger siege that depicts the shackles imposed by a patriarchal society.
The film tackles the revolution marking a different approach from other films that highlighted the same theme of the revolution. It tells the story of women who seek to be understood rather than to be pitied without limiting women to her ” body” that is perceived as both the problem and the solution.
